View Full Version : Nerdy Tattoos?

Does anybody have/want some sort of nerdy (and I mean that in a 100% positive way let me assure you!) tattoo? I've seen a bunch across the net but I was wondering if anybody here had any, or any plans for some! And if not what are your thoughts on them?

I have a couple in mind for myself, but I bring this up cause my friend is turning 18 on Friday, and wants to get a design from FMA. I'm just not sure its a good plan cause I don't know how much thought he's put into it, and its a pretty big choice! But I digress! Tell me about your ink, or hypothetical ink! (:

Personally, one I would love to get the Ravenclaw motto "Wit Beyond Measure is Man's Greatest Treasure" tattooed, possibly behind my ears. I've loved Harry Potter since I was a little kid, and its a phrase I can really get behind! Plus I think want to go into education when I'm older.

I have two tats, one is the Chinese symbols for 'illusion' but I don't think that entirely counts as nerdy.

My third and final one, definitely going to be nerdy! It's such a big aspect of my life, I'm positive about this decision. I haven't decided what I want yet - maybe Nel's 3 on my back or the Stargate symbol - but it'll be this year and I can't wait. :3

Oh, and don't get what your friend designed unless it's entirely awesome. I hate when people are like 'oh don't do it you'll regret it' but while it might be true sometimes, if you have your heart set on a tat then you get it!

My friend has the earth address from Stargate on his arm and the band disturbed logo on his other wrist.

NICE!!

i have my son's initials on my ribs already, not exactly nerdy but sentimental. i eventually want to get the lion from the amestris flag (probably on my forearm) and a horde symbol (from WoW) on my shoulder, but first i'm getting my family crest and possibly a photo of a landmark from my home town. right side = stuff from life, left side = hobbies and interests!

I've wanted to get one for like 10 years now but indecision has really slowed me down. For a while, I was considering designing some sort of cosplay crest but I didn't like how it looked and gave up. I still like the idea of some sort of cosplay related tat.

It's a shame, I've come up with art for my ex and brother but nothing I'm happy with.

I work in an alterations shop and I once did a fitting with a girl who had a chibi Link and Zelda on each shoulder blade. I almost let out a squeal when I saw them, but had to settle for a "woah, cool!" to keep the professionalism thing.

It'd be so cool to have a Dark Mark tattoo from Harry Potter on your arm. *U*
I haven't considered any 'nerdy' tattoos, only cuz I don't like the possiblity of me growing out of it and not wanting it permanently on my skin.

I have three! :D

On my lower back is the Soul Eater Rune from Suikoden, on my wrist is a chibi/sprite version of Princess Kururu from the Marl Kingdom games and on my foot I have a roller skate (I used to play roller derby haha).

I really, really want to get the Judgement Ring from Shadow Hearts as my next tattoo.

I've thought about it. But my version of nerdy is more "literary nerdy" than "otaku nerdy."
For example, I'd love this (http://ephemeralnewyork.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/littlenemo.png) on my arm, a full-back tattoo of this (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_E_o_0Bdm4GA/TFkG6_vx5KI/AAAAAAAA8IA/g-uQavX_Ecw/s1600/Rhein+maidens+warn+Siegfried.+By+Arthur+Rackham.+P ublished+1912.jpg), or perhaps this (http://www.equinerescuesc.org/img/art/800px-Walter_Crane_001.jpg) across my shoulder blades.

I LOVE late 1890s - 1919 children's books/illustrations!

Holy hell...It's been years since I've seen that. That's even better now that I see it...Hahaha. DO want! :D

I like tattoos but I can't bring myself to permanently ink myself thanks to the crappy society we live in. Tattoos can be the difference from making or breaking another crappy job, new friends, enemies, being recognized or being kicked out of certain places. I deal with enough discrimination as is. I don't need to worry about more crap so I'm going to stay uninked unless there's some temporary solution or an ink that is only visible in certain kinds of light.

I got about 8 tattoos total, but as to my friends the dorky tattoos I got happen to be my Peter White from Alice in The Country of Hearts posing all in my opinion hot like on my left shoulder.
And on my left side/ribs I got a huge piece I drew myself of a neko girl based on an old character I made that's wearing a white button up shirt. Reaches pretty much from the side of my breasts down to almost my hip.
The rest of my tat's don't really involve anime much but another does involve more of Alice In Wonderland like stuff since ever since I was a little girl I was a huge fan of all.
Kinda explains why I prob fell in love with Alice in The Country of Hearts. I sorta wanna get Boris done on my right side, one day soon. (Rib tat's hurt incredibly I still think.)

Daemon: Well I've heard about this product thats really amazing for covering tattoos! Its like they're not even there! Its called "clothing!" :D But all sarcasm aside, if you plan to get a job that could be put in jeopardy by having a tattoo, but you want one, just get it where it'll be covered when you want! My sister plans to go into business and she has a huge bird on her ribs, but it would certainly be strange if they saw THAT for some reason in an interview... Its a personal choice though! (:

Hahahahaha

I have a friend who has 8bit Bowser tattooed on his shoulder.

I have a set of angel wings tattooed on my back over my shoulder blades. They were an 18th birthday tattoo but took 4 sittings to complete. I had been thinking about it for years before hand and today I still feel really good about it.

I am planning to get a chocobo on my ankle. It was going to be my 21st birthday present to myself but money has been really tight for me to just blow on body art. Some day soon I hope!

Ah the Hunger Games! Reading that now, great book (:

Really cool ideas guys (: I probably wouldn't get an anime character inked on me for the simple fact that my fandom changes a lot and what I like now I may not like in 4 years xD I would consider getting getting and anime characters name in kanji/japanese lettering though...Nerdy thought but I would actually get Neji's name from naruto tattooed on my back... I'm not big into naruto now (In fact i make fun of it more than a previous fan should haha) But Neji was my first huge anime crush so he holds a special place in my heart even to this day.
OR
The design on the back of the Vocaloid Gakupo's clothes and also on his fan (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_cDD3Cd-NC1w/SqikS3mGcyI/AAAAAAAABQk/y9OyfpZV4l4/s400/KamuiGakupo.jpg) Because I it that bad for him heheh... All in all the two I want to get are very sentimental to me no matter how lame they seem xD But its just a thought! Hopefully my life will get eventful enough for me to have a tattoo that actually means something not anime related...

Lots of other tattoos, but those are the two that would be considered nerdy. Also, they get me free drinks because every male bartender ever played Legend of Zelda or alternately likes Transformers.

I actually have a printout of all of the planetary symbols and have been contemplating getting them in the respective colours of the scouts to whom they represent. I considered them going down my side, but I haven't quite settled on a type of graphic for how they look - stone, weathered stone, metal - whatever. If someone's got photos of something like this I'd be grateful to see them.

I just haven't found anything to go up the other side of my body - maybe Tengwar script or something, I don't know.

There are two tatoos I have thought about getting. Still on the plate, but I would just need to go get them.

1. The symbol of torment - The spirit wrapped around the nameless one's upper arm from the game Planescape: Torment.

http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p161/krwdserfur/PlanescapeTorment.jpg

2. The Soul-Eater Rune from the Suikoden series. Freaking amazing design, loved it since I saw it in the first game. I actually spray painted it on the hood of my first car years back. Ill post the link to the picture when I'm not at work :P

I have a tattoo of ritsuka from loveless on my upper back and i love it because i'll admit it i'm a bit of a yaoi fan boy i spent a good few days looking for the design

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=311553&l=f943d51790&id=100000499001229

ask him if it's a design he really really likes because it will be there forever and when he sees it in 20 years time he'll be like "oh yeah thats awsome" if he's says yes to all that, then he should get it but if he hesitates slightly then you should as a freind put you foot down and maybe ask him to rethink

I thinking my next tattoo is going to be Haruhi Suzumiya

My next tattoo I hope to get sometime this year is the Griever symbol from FFVIII. I'm about 98% sure I want it on my ankle. That game was what introduced me to the Final Fantasy series. I just wish it didn't get so much flack.

I also wanted to get the Shinra symbol on my wrist and this one on my other wrist but not only would it probably look bad but I have to be able to hide my ink when I finally get into my career of choice.*small pout*

This is it more or less. I'm just not sure if I should make it metallic looking or something else:

I have a tattoo on my left calf that's a stripped down version of the X-Men symbol. I love it with all my heart and believe me when I say it has more meaning to me than just being the X-Men.

I'm also working on an original representation of the number 42, which will be a throwback to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as well as representing something personal to me.

I've got two tattoos. The first one is Xena's chakram (http://rinoa07.deviantart.com/gallery/26118249#/d21t5as), from the the show back in the 90s. it was my birthday present to myself when I turned 20. I've been a diehard fan since I was 9.

Then my second one is a back tattoo of a Jareth quote (http://rinoa07.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=scraps#/d2uuy14) from the movie Labyrinth. I thought of this on a Monday and got it done that Friday. I'm impulsive. And it hurt like bloody hell when the artist was going over my spine.

And I'm loving all the Zelda love in this thread, haha. I saw a girl at ACen a few years back with a giant Midna tattoo that was pretty sweet.

Will probably get developed into some kind of back piece.

@ Rinoa07 - Love both of them!

I don't have any tattoos thus far but if I ever got up the courage I think I'd get these lines from the one ring poem in LOTR as an arm band:

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

Okay, I love tattoos and once I am of legal age to get them, I'm getting oodles. I plan on getting my back done with angel wings, one mainly black, and one mainly white, with the words: We all must face the choice between what is right and what is easy - Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter-ish script, in the middle. I've got it planed out! I also would like to get something involving pokeballs SOMEWHERE on my body, for I absolutely adore pokemon, and it has been a big part of my childhood. I also like the idea of 8-bit.<3
I'm not afraid of needles or pain, I've already got the few piercings my parents can handle. I just have to wait until I am eighteen until I can further progress my body modification.

Thank you. I love your avatar, btw. "Xena: Warrior Cosplayer" I never thought of that! I might steal it now >_> For use on say XboxLive or something, it goes with my gamertag.

As for you tattoo idea, I say go for it! It might hurt a bit, especially on the underside of your arm, since it's so tender, but it would be really cool, kinda like a spiral or something, Particularly if you got it done in tengwar.

I also would like to get something involving pokeballs SOMEWHERE on my body, for I absolutely adore pokemon, and it has been a big part of my childhood.
Get them on your hip, like if you were a real pokemon trainer!

I was thinking of that C:
I'm also getting the XBox's power button design on my breast bone, over my heart somewhat. Showing that all my power is in my heart. Plus I'm and avid gamer, and I can say life would be boring without my 360!

Got an appointment to get the Pulse L'cie tattoo this friday evening[getting it on my left side of my chest like Lightning ]...I'm getting it because I want to remind myself I have a purpose in life.

I've only ever done one tattoo,it happened to be a ginormous tramp stamp with my husbands name on it *I got that one because he's changed my life and who I am for the better *

I haven't gotten a tattoo, but I've considered doing something horribly, terribly, rather freakishly nerdy and getting The Boss's scar tattooed on my torso. Even my husband thinks that's strange, so I'm not likely to do it.

These are all really awesome! :D Another idea I've tossed around is getting "Wisdom, power, and courage" written in Hylian somewhere on me! But I'm also considering some sort of elvish. I'm teaching myself the language. (:

I have the Star Trek Communicator badge logo on my left shoulder blade, the klingon insignia on my right shoulder blade, Colossus and Kitty Pryde on my right leg, and Deadpool on my left leg. Eventually my left leg will be a band of zombie super heroes and the right leg will be X-Men from Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men. Can't post pics as I'm posting from work and they block photobucket

Nerdy tattoos rule.

EDIT: Ha! I am a crafty dude.

That is one of the best tattoo ideas I've heard in a while :). I know couples who have had each other's names tattooed in kanji; if I were to marry the right nerd, I'd want us to both get each other's names in Hylian or Elvish or something like that :).


When I was younger and really into Dark Angel, I used to want a barcode on the back of my neck.

And it even works with some of my cosplays. (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2804936/)

I honestly forget I have this most of the time. Then I see it in the mirror and I think "Oh yeah, I have a star on my shoulder."

I'm in the process of nerding myself just finished my outline of it yesterday. Lots more shading sessions to go but I'm very excited to see this finished. For those not fimilar with what it might be its Revy's Tattoo from Black Lagoon. Tribute to the most kick butt female anime character out there. Ya I also picked a fun project for my first tattoo but hey this tattoo basicly represents strong females so it was go big or don't go at all. I wont lie spots on this tattoo are not for the faint of heart the coller bone,neck and underarm are not the funniest places to be tattooed haha.

Hey SecretSoliloquy :) it's :

Final Fantasy 13 ,it's a brand for "having a focus" i.e something that you're meant to do (according to the storyline) I got it because life tends to throw some curveballs my way and I get lost in thoughts,it's nice to remember I have a purpose in life through this tattoo,so that's what it is for me .

Several members of my cosgroup got tattoos together on our group founder's birthday. We each got a different Harry Potter spell in Edwardian Script. I got "Crucio" on my left hip, because my left hip has been the bane of my existence since 2008, and is constantly hurting me. My friends and I thought it'd be funny. :'D

I doubt I'd ever get a tattoo (parents hate, I'll age funny, fear of needles and disease, etc). But it's still fun to entertain the thought ^-^
I'd likely go for the wave tattoo Haseo has on his stomach from the first .hack//G.U. game, the Archadian seal from Final Fantasy XII, and the True Wind Rune from Suikoden III.

I knew this drug-addled girl years ago who had a tattoo of Homer Simpson sleeping on a couch and clutching a beer on her right butt cheek.
I bet by now she feels pretty stupid. If she's still alive, that is.

I'd wager that not only is she still alive, and still enjoys it, but her 5 children do too. At least they would, if she knew where they were.

Thank you Akiko ^___^ !!!

by the way I came across this tattoo some time ago,while looking around for bad examples of linework....this....is...too funny. [Apparently David Beckham sports this 2nd link ,the original,first link is someone who requested to have it and apparently that's what they got XD ]

I would want Ichigo Momomiya's mark from Tokyo Mew Mew on my thigh because it was my very first manga and what got me into anime.

Then my second one is a back tattoo of a Jareth quote (http://rinoa07.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=scraps#/d2uuy14) from the movie Labyrinth. I thought of this on a Monday and got it done that Friday. I'm impulsive. And it hurt like bloody hell when the artist was going over my spine.

You are my new best friend !! XD
Oh my goondess I LOOOOOOOVE Labyrinth! I have always wanted to get a quote from that movie as a tattoo but I dont know which one yet x3

Someday I'll most likely get something related to Gurren Lagann. Either Kamina's glasses or the Dai Gurren Brigade symbol. Either way it'll have "Do the Impossible" underneath it.

I've decided what my next Tat will be: a green and black basilisk wrapping around my right arm from my wrist to the elbow with the tail near my elbow and the mouth open with fangs showing either on the back of my hand or where the thumb and first finger meet.

Omg This. I'd even go as far as getting kaminas tattoo but I'd get scolded by my family lol
I'd get boota on my arm if anything

Alas I fear I will never get it done as I want to keep myself mark and hole free for cosplay xD

Hahaha *Rolls* oh noes! I'm actually an atheist. Its probably best I never get tats because I am petrified of needles : |

I heard that you can buy some skin stuff that covers up tattoos though! it seems like a lot of excess hassle though D:
